2019-05-03 | Mystery Git ransomware appears to blank commits, demands Bitcoin to rescue code • The Register

"Programmers say they've been hit by ransomware that seemingly wipes their Git repositories' commits and replaces them with a ransom note demanding Bitcoin."

'The netizen added that the ransom note they received referenced gitsbackup[dot]com, and demanded about $560 in crypto-currency to un-fsck the repo. '

'Gabos added that he was "using SourceTree but somehow I doubt that SourceTree is the issue, or that my system (Windows 10) was compromised. '

' See the updates on this post for instructions on how to recover your repos if they are wiped by the ransomware. ®', "In an edit, he added:Atlassian, maintainer of Sourcetree, had not responded to The Register's inquiries at the time of publication."
